    Zircon-class Asteroid Miner

    Allow me to present one of the proudest productions of Cyberspace Shipyards:
    The Zircon-class Asteroid Miner, fitted with New Systems™ technology.


    FEATURES:
    • A mining laser systems with 640 beams.
    • A tractor beam system with 1300 modules.
    • A huge spinception-ish grinding system (with zirconium blades, I guess) to prepare all that asteroid rock for the mining lasers.
    • An on-board mineral tank of 350K capacity; the mining system fills only this tank by default, but if you turn on "Storage pull" (on the storage block below the core) then everything will be automatically transferred to the 210K removable container atop.
    • A reactor slightly under 300,000 e/s power generation and slightly above 100% stabilization.
    • Four FTL chambers and a level-2 "Mining Bonus" logistics chamber (much higher ore and shard yield).
    • A stylish and cozy interior with everything you need to survive in the unforgiving hostility of outer space (like air conditioning, coffee and jazz music).

    Thanks! :)
    Love the look and feel of this ship and the functionality built into it, the use of rails on the cargo pod and the interior decoration. Definitely an A+ mining and roleplay build.

    Thanks very much for the review! Nice to know that people appreciate the look a feel of this ship, this convinces me that it was worth building it.

    Glad to hear that you also like the cargo pod railing and the interior design, I tried to put a lot of attention into them.

    Have fun with it! :)
    The part of me that has played Starmade for years wants to say how much I like this ship but the part of me that has worked with industrial granulators for years wants to tell you this design would never work. It sure does look neat though.

    I imagine so myself :D But it's still a tad more realistic than hoovering up vaporized rock with lasers, the radiation pressure of which (or the jets of gas it would produce on overheated surfaces) would instead blow away that stuff in reality - I mean, does StarMade even science?!

    Anyways, I'm glad you like it, thanks for the 5 stars! :)
